Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Intelligent, geeky male seeks similar female for fun and frolicking
in the London area.
I would generally prefer to get to know someone during a nice
conversation over coffee, but I have many awesome words you can
read in the meantime, as well as over 3000 match answers.
This article on the BBC:
says men often lie
about their height on dating profiles. I really am in fact 6' 3".
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I recently moved from Sheffield to London and am liking life in the
big city. I spent three years here as a student so I was pretty
sure I wouldn't hate it.
I drifted out of ballroom dancing after nine years, but I'm open to
starting again and have taken up Salsa dancing in the
I have a good job as a computer programmer as well as long time
girlfriend and I am happy with both. I'm now trying to expand my
horizons (being 6'3 my horizons are technically bigger than most)
and see what else life has to offer.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Avoiding awkward silences by having awkward conversations.
- Using a pair of coins as impromptu tweezers.
- Dr Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine (or Puyo Puyo)
- Knowing more than you (or being genuinely enthusiastic and
interested if I don't).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm six foot three and have long hair.
Although someone once told me the first thing they thought when
they met me was "I wonder if he'll notice I'm stealing his drink?".
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Many people on here say this section is not very important. In the
grand scheme of things I agree, but having some superficial things
in common makes those early conversations much easier :)
Sci-fi good, in all forms. Action, horror and comedy good for
movies. Not really into music. I like pizza and
I'm very flexible with movies. A bit less so with TV. You liking
some of the following would be good:
Douglas Adams • Song of Ice and Fire • Greg Egan • Mars Trilogy •
Philip K. Dick • Brian Lumley • Terry Pratchett
Aliens • Dirty Dancing • Arnold Schwarzeneger • Shawshank
Redemption • Superstar! • Bridget Jones's Diary • Clancy Brown •
Home Alone • Robocop • Jim Carey • Rocky Horror Picture Show • Cube
• Helena Bonham-Carter • Invictus • Saw • Harry Potter • Lost
Game of Thrones • Blackadder • Stargate • Simpsons • Young Doctor's
Notebook • Have I Got News For You • Family Guy • Star Trek • QI •
BSG • Fawlty Towers
t.A.T.u • System of a Down • Weird Al Yankovic • Jonathan Coulton •
ABBA • Eminem • Rammstein
Food is not the way to my heart.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
This section is now: "Some things I like that might tell you
something about me"
- Science, mathematics and a general knowledge and wonder about how
the world works
- The internet (and as a result my phone). The best way to get to
that knowledge (and without my phone I would be physically lost
- Games. As well as video games, I'm big fan of "serious" board
games. I tolerate Monopoly.
- People. Despite being generally an introvert, most of the things
I like are better with other people
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Whether to message someone who seems like someone I wouldn't like,
but OkCupid insists I have a 90% match with.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
This section is now: "I like to spend my evening"
I support staying in, and when out I support sitting down. Why I
love partner dancing so much is still a mystery.
Staying in activity of choice would be watching movies and/or
playing games. I dislike very few movies and nearly every game is
fun multiplayer. Make it a house party and life might be perfect
(four player drunken Mario on a Wii should be on your bucket
Going out at night, I'd prefer a quiet pub to a club. But I
secretly like clubs too, in small doses. Persuading me may be hard
but the results can be worth it - I once helped lead an impromptu
chorus line with another straight guy at a gay club night.
Or we could go Salsa dancing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I wore fake tan when I danced competitively.
I lied about wanting to meet for coffee. I don't like coffee and
will probably have tea or hot chocolate.
I have experienced more HHGTTG than you.
In the section above I originally wrote "I prefer a quiet pug"
I’m looking for
- Girls who like guys
- Ages 22–36
- Near me
- Who are single
- For new friends, short-term dating, casual sex
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Some, none or fewer of the following are true:
- You are intelligent, geeky and love learning new things
(especially from someone else enthusiastic). Bonus points if you
know more Maths than I do.
- You are vaguely liberal minded and at least not racist, sexist or
- You are good at (or want to try) any form of partner dancing. I'm
down to one day a week doing Salsa right now and that's not enough
- You like video games and prefer local multiplayer (I like almost
any type of game multiplayer). Bonus points for couch coop.
- You can write in full sentences, but still like smilies :P
- You like to cuddle on a sofa watching movies or TV
- You are happy with the fact that I'm in an open
- You are kinky and would like to explore that with someone who has
an under-developed interest.
Who are you looking for?
This helps us know who to show you on OkCupid.
